Gowdy Rebuffs Dem Request To Probe Whistleblower's Mike Flynn Claims

08 December 2017

General Michael Flynn-within minutes of Donald Trump being sworn in as president-was communicating directly with his former business colleagues about their plan to work with Russian Federation to build nuclear reactors in the Middle East.

The New York Times was first to report the letter on Wednesday, claiming it represents "the strongest evidence to date that the Trump administration wanted to end the sanctions immediately, and suggests that Mr. Flynn had a possible economic incentive for the United States to forge a closer relationship with Russian Federation".

Flynn, who pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, did consulting work with the form as part of a deal to build nuclear reactors across the middle east. Staffers for the special counsel asked Mr. Cummings not to make the whistle-blower's account public until "they completed certain investigative steps", he wrote.

The witness told congressional investigators that he was "extremely uncomfortable" with the conversation, Cummings wrote, and took brief notes about the discussion during the inaugural event.

North Carolina State's Dave Doeren agreed to a contract with the Wolfpack on Thursday after speaking with Tennessee officials. Under Pruitt, Alabama ranked No. 1 nationally in scoring defense, No. 1 in yards per play and No. 2 in total defense in 2017.

Gowdy did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

During the conversation, Mr. Copson told the whistle-blower that "this is the best day of my life" because it was "the start of something I've been working on for years, and we are good to go". "But the exceptionally troubling allegations in this case - combined with ongoing obstruction from the White House and others - have made this step necessary".

Cummings said he had found the unnamed informant to be "authentic, credible and reliable", and offered to produce the person for Gowdy. According to the whistleblower, Copson bragged to the whistleblower on Inauguration Day 2017 that Flynn had told Copson that the Russian Federation sanctions that had been an obstacle to the project pushed by the company will be "ripped up".

In Flynn's agreement last week to plead guilty to one count of making false statements, prosecutors said that Flynn lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his discussions on sanctions against Russia with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition. "I am going to celebrate today".

The Oldest Black Hole Ever Discovered Is Defying All Our Expectations
The earliest known quasar is located 13.04 billion light years from Earth and existed about 750 million years after the Big Bang. Supermassive black holes are thought to exist at the centre of almost every galaxy in the universe.

So what we have is a second-hand account of text messages allegedly sent by Michael Flynn. Given the seriousness of the charge and the person making it, if the committee isn't going to issue a subpoena, Robert Mueller nearly certainly will. The witness could not read the text, but he saw that the time stamp was 12:11 p.m., according Cummings's letter.

The chairman said he shared Mr Cummings's letter with the Republican leading the Intelligence Committee's Trump-Russia probe, as well as that panel's top Democrat, "so they may determine whether to add witnesses" to that panel's witness list.

Copson, according to the whistleblower, said Obama's sanctions had "f**ked everything up in my nuclear deal with the sanctions".

ACU Strategic Partners paid for Flynn to travel to Israel and Egypt in 2015 to promote the nuclear project, paying him a fee of $25,000, according to a letter Copson sent the committee.
